Texas’ Medicaid 1115 Transformation Waiver represents a major resource in reshaping the delivery of health care in communities across the state. Hospitals are collaborating with providers of all types to implement ways to make health care more effective and efficient.
Each region has unique needs and challenges, and projects are developed to meet local needs.
To demonstrate the local impact of the waiver for members of Congress and highlight the innovative work hospitals and their partners are pursuing, the Texas Hospital Association has produced the following one-pagers.
Note: Congressional district uninsured, UC and DSRIP data are estimates based on county data. If a Congressional district is part of multiple counties, even if it is just part of a county, the uninsured count and payment data will reflect the data for the whole county. For this reason, counts may be somewhat overestimated, particularly for districts that are part of multiple urban counties.
